##### Abstract

Using a few conditions, continuous dependence, and a result regarding smoothness of initial conditions, we show that derivatives of solutions to the second order boundary value problem ${y}^{\prime \prime }=f\left(x,y,{y}^{\prime }\right)$, $a, satisfying $y\left({x}_{1}\right)={y}_{1}$, $1∕\left(d-c\right){\int }_{c}^{d}y\left(x\right)\phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}\underset{̣}{x}={y}_{2}$, where $a<{x}_{1} and ${y}_{1},{y}_{2}\in ℝ$ with respect to each of the boundary data ${x}_{1}$, ${y}_{1}$, ${y}_{2}$, $c$, $d$ solve the associated variational equation with interesting boundary conditions. Of note is the second boundary condition, which is an average value condition.
